Domino and me – A Great Loop Adventure
HIYC Member Zyg Durski 
Currently docked at Lock #6 of the Trent Severn Waterway. Six days in Kingston, Ontario were amazing. Outdoor concerts, a street fair, The Multisport Canada Triathlon, a visit to Canada’s West Point, The Royal Military College of Canada. But Domino was long overdue for a new mainsail so a trip to John Clark’s Sail Loft was in order. John is an incredibly talented and lettered sail maker with over 30 years of experience. The new custom hand-crafted sail will be delivered next week just in time for sailing the Georgian Bay. Finally, it was time to unstep Domino’s mast at Kingston Marina. This same location builds fire boats for cities such as Miami and New York. The new fire boat for Kuwait was going through sea trials right next to us. The74 mile trip to Trenton, the start of the Trent Severn Waterway took 12 hours through the Bay of Quinte with weather that ran the gamut from fog, absolutely no wind, torrential rain to clear skies and strong wind. Next, transiting the remaining 37 locks including the Peterborough hydraulic lift lock and the Big Chute marine railway Lock #44.
